Ezekiel Bulver Discovers Himself

One of the central themes of postmodernity is human "situatedness." Postmoderns are invariably preoccupied with why we think the way we do, not what we think. They focus on the process of attending, not the object of attention. Therefore, arguments are not to be refuted; they are to be "situated." Although C.S. Lewis died four years before Derrida published Of Grammatology, he foresaw the coming of postmodernity and personified it in Ezekiel Bulver, a creative inventor who discovers (like Descartes) . . . himself! See the entire essay here.
